JASON CHAFFETZ: I have sat with Attorney General [Jeff] Sessions in person and I talked to him on the phone. My own personal opinion, I don't think the attorney general is up to the job. I just don't. It's sad because I think he has a storied history. He's done a lot for this country. But the moment he got there he had to recuse himself. He's nowhere to be found on pushing this. And I do think you’re going to see Congress, particularly over the next couple weeks, including next week, really ratchet it up. Because I don't think that they are actually living up to their job and administering justice. I'm not saying it has to go the Republicans' way. I just don't see them moving forward on any of these fronts.

LOU DOBBS (HOST): Why the hell shouldn't it go the Republicans' way? We elected a Republican president. 

CHAFFETZ: Call balls and strikes.

DOBBS: We've got Republican leadership in both houses. Why in the world aren't the leaders of the Senate and the House standing shoulder to shoulder with Trump? Because they could bring this thing to a conclusion.
